Taylor Swift is giving her fans a gift on her birthday. On Sunday, Swift announced on her 26th birthday that Apple Music will be streaming a “1989 World Tour Live” that was shot at her concerts around the world, featuring appearances and performances by her many famous colleagues and friends. The special will be available, beginning December 20. See announcement video below.

Swift posted the news of her Instagram and Twitter accounts. Along with a one-minute teaser video, Swift wrote, “Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes! I have a little surprise for you. The 1989 World Tour Live Directed by Jonas Akerlund Released on @applemusic December 20, 2015.”

In the video, Swift begins by asking, “I wondered what it would be like to perform for 70,000 people.” And then she questions, “I wondered what would happen if I invited the most amazing artists in the world to come out with me and perform on my stage… Would they do it?” Swift then discusses about what it was like to “get so lost in it every night and never want [the tour] to end.”

As Swift asked her questions and announced the Apple Music “1989 World Tour Live” special, viewers see a number of the big-name musicians who joined Swift during her seven-month tour that hit 53 different cities around the world. Among the stars to be featured in the special, we learn, are Mick Jagger, Selena Gomez, Fetty Wap, Miranda Lambert, Alanis Morissette, Wiz Khalifa and Justin Timberlake.
